Red Light District is one of the most popular destinations at Massacre Rocks, second only the All American Area and it has one of the shortest approaches. The routes here run the full range from moderate to hard and short 30' climbs to a few 90 foot routes. The crag has a slight bend and the rock faces either east or southeast.

The Red light district has 3 closely spaced sections. On the left end is the tallest wall with half a dozen mostly moderate routes. The middle section is a nice 60 or 70 feet in height and has some major classic climbs like Love Slave, Barbara Dare, and Sweaty Betty. The right section is shorter but hosts some popular climbs like Woody in the Woods and Scared Stiff.

Getting There 

Access the right side of the Red Light District from "P1" parking on the west rim. See the Beta Picture for access. Five minute hike.

Access the left side of the Red Light District from "P2" parking on the west rim. 5-10 minute hike.
